This was a good book, better than I thought it would be at the beginning. When Nicole stormed out of her father's house, all she wanted to do was get away. After working for years to do the best she could do for her father's company, he had turned it all over to her estranged brother, without even telling her what he was going to do. So she met up with friends at a club and started dancing, where she came to Nate's attention. He was immediately drawn to her, as she was to him. When he realized w ...more

This hero was a complete and total jerk! I kept checking the cover because I thought I was reading one of Diana Palmer's Long, Tall Texans books! Yikes. How this heroine managed to convince herself to stay with this idiot is beyond me...well, okay, it was the sex.

This was a good book. Nate and Nicole had a lit of family history to overcome in order to find their happiness together and Yvonne Lindsay did a good job bringing them together.

Nate thinks Nicole is beautiful from the moment he sets eyes on her, what is totally okay with me because this is a romance novel. Then, once he realizes that she's actually the daughter of his biggest business rival, he triples his efforts to seduce her. This seducing isn't hard, because Nicole is totes heartbroken after she finds out that her father and best friend conspired to bring back her brother and give him the entire family business, even though Nicole has almost singlehandedly made the ...more

This was a pretty recent book if you want a quick read to occupy your mind. The sex scenes are great!! The one thing that had me breathing a sigh of relief was that she WASN'T pregnant! Almost every fricking book I pick up lately there's a baby or a random pregnancy. It's really annoying at this point so the fact that she wasn't was great.

Here are the negatives: I had a problem with almost every character. The hero, Nate, says his mom taught him to respect women yet he uses a sex tape to manipul
A ver, cuando leí el comienzo de este libro en el anterior de la saga, esperaba muchísimo de esta historia, y lo cumplió en los primeros 4 capítulos más o menos, pero después se fue desvirtuando totalmente y el protagonista masculino me llegó a dar hasta un poquito de miedo con lo caprichoso que era con que todo se diese tal como él lo quería y pensaba que era correcto. Él la obliga a hacer cosas porque ÉL cree que es lo mejor para ella pero jamás le da la libertad de decidir por si misma, me pa ...more

A Forbidden Affair was a good read. It was somewhat different to other harlequin reads in the terms that she wasn't pregnant and it showed the heroine raw emotions. After being controller by everyone around her Nicole became a "walking dead". It ended somewhat okay but I felt that the hero was too demanding.


I loved this short story. It is the main reason this book received four stars from me. Dinah moved to San Francisco three months ago and bonded with

A Forbidden Affair by Yvonne Lindsay
Yvonne Lindsay takes us on a very passionate journey to New Zealand into the world of wine distribution. After a disagreement with her family, Nicole Wilson heads to a nightclub. There she meets Nate Hunter. Instantly there is an attraction there. She is the enemy’s daughter. Revenge will be sweet. After their wild weekend together he basically blackmails her- she will work for him or her family will learn of the affair. It’s always fun watching a hero have so

When Nate started blackmailing Nicole, I wasn't sure that there was any way that I could come to like him as a character. However, I think that the way he proved his love was perfect for this book.

I also loved the way that Karekare was described by Yvonne, and think the way that Nicole asks if Nate is a Westie can only truly be understood by Kiwi readers of this book.
It was fabulous to see Judd and Anna again after the ending of the first Master Vintners story too.

The plot was okay but the writing... I have read the book in portuguese, so I don't know if I didn't like it because of the translation or if it is because of the writer. Anyway' it was not my favorite.
